Outline
  • Make your 2nd slide an outline of your
    presentation
  • Ex previous slide
  • Only place main points on the outline slide
  • Ex Use your main points as the titles of each
    slide
  • Follow the order of your outline for the rest of
    the presentation

7
Slide Structure Good
  • Show one point at a time
  • Avoid wordiness use key words and phrases
  • Follow the 7 by 7 Rule
  • Include an idea per slide
  • Use visuals that represent your points

8
Slide Structure - Bad
  • This page contains too many words for a
    presentation slide. It is not written in point
    form, making it difficult both for your audience
    to read and for you to present each point.
    Although there are exactly the same number of
    points on this slide as the previous slide, it
    looks much more complicated. In short, your
    audience will spend too much time trying to read
    this paragraph instead of listening to you.

9
Fonts - Good
  • Use at least a 24-point font
  • Use different size fonts for main points and
    secondary points
  • this font is 24-point, the main point font is
    28-point, and the title font is 36-point
  • Use a standard font like Times New Roman or Arial

10
Fonts - Bad
  • Dont use a complicated font
  • If you use a small font, your audience wont be
    able to read what you have written
  • CAPITALIZE ONLY WHEN NECESSARY. IT IS DIFFICULT
    TO READ

11
Color - Good
  • Use a color of font that contrasts sharply with
    the background
  • Ex blue font on white background
  • Use color to reinforce the logic of your
    structure
  • Ex light blue title and dark blue text
  • Use color to emphasize a point
  • But only use this occasionally

12
Color - Bad
  • A font color that does not contrast with the
    background color is hard to read
  • Color for decoration is distracting and annoying
  • A different color for each point is unnecessary
  • Trying to be creative can also be bad

13
Background - Good
  • Use backgrounds such as this one that are
    attractive but simple
  • Use backgrounds which are light
  • Use the same background consistently throughout
    your presentation

14
Background Bad
  • Avoid backgrounds that are distracting or
    difficult to read from
  • Avoid distracting animation

15
Spelling and Grammar
  • Proof your slides for
  • speling mistakes
  • the use of of repeated words
  • grammatical errors you might have make

16
Conclusion
  • Avoid ending a presentation abruptly
  • Use a strong closing summarizing the main points

17
